Purple Desire

Hey there everyone! It has been quite the busy month for us here. We have been finishing the move into our new studios and houses/apartments! Almost there! Today I wanted to share with you some images from our second natural dye workshop in partnership with the HP Rawlings Conservatory in Baltimore, MD.

During this class we demonstrated how to use Logwood as a natural dye and also discussed how to use batik as a method of textile surface design. Everyone walked away with their own BEAUTIFUL sample piece. Just to note: in photos you will notice groups of people working with glue on white fabric. This was our own way of demonstrating how batik resist works without the use of heat and hot wax. The faux batik collaborative pieces will be installed as tapestries in our upcoming exhibition in October at the Conservatory! More information on that will be up soon!

We would also like to give a shootout to our dear friend and photographer Pano Pixel Pro aka Chris Gales. Thank you for the amazing photos!

We had such a great time at our second workshop. We can't wait for the next one (in two weeks!) For more information on our workshop calendar click here. Or RSVP at the HP Rawlings Conservatory here. 

Have a great day everyone!

With love&light,

Claire
